Who were these Morgans who lived in Clark Co. as early as the 1790s?

Classification: Query
Surnames: Morgan, Faris, Myers, Hampton
Esther or Hester, widow of --?-- Morgan married William Myers 6 Oct 1794 (bond). At the same time she gave her daughter Margaret Morgan permission to marry John Faris (Phares).

On 3 June 1797 Esther (Hester) stated that her daughter Rachel Morgan was of age to act for herself. This was when her daughter Rachel married Moses Hampton.

On 18 April 1810 Enoch Morgan married Renis Morgan.

A Rennis Faris, b. abt 1820 was living in the household of John Faris and his wife Margaret, probably their daughter, and perhaps indicating some relationship between Margaret and the Renis Morgan who married Enoch Morgan.

Later censuses in KY, IN and OH show Virginia as the birthplace of these Morgans, except for Margaret. The 1850 census shows her place of birth as Maryland, but that could be incorrect.

Who were all these Morgans???
